With this babe, I was king of the road!


For an Alfa Romeo, surprisingly not many things went wrong. I had some problems with the ignition, and a little something with electronics.

General Comments:

Alfa Romeo 33 was the greatest car I ever drove. It's fast, easy to handle, sporty in every way. After I tuned it up to 236 HP, which I must say cost me a fortune, I was unbeatable. No Civic VTi, no Nissan GTi 16V, no Golf GTi, no Toyota Celica Turbo, nothing was a threat to me. Believe it or not I left behind an M3 with such ease I couldn't believe it!

I had to change everything from the suspension, brakes, machine, and wheels, but I got 6.00 seconds from 0-100 KM/H and 244 KM/H max speed!!!

Everyone: Looking for sport car? Try an Alfa Romeo.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Wow, how did you get so much power from the old boxer engine! Got to let me in on some of your secrets! I have a 1992 Permanent 4 which I am bringing back to its former glory, so any boost in power would not go amiss, as would any other advice? Indeed, if anyone else has tuned a P4, please let me know what you have done and if it worked!

LOL, many thanks,
